wow, that really speeds up the browser! The part with all the logos spinning... it hurt my eyes! xD the ion one was spinning fast and the other one was like not even moving... lol the guy raging
GPU's are becoming more and more important no question. This is why I think eventually Intel will buy Nvidia as their graphics play a major role in viewing HD content or just viewing rich graphics. The GPU really enhances the experience and for a netbook and desktops in general and I see this trend continuing in the future.This will propel Intel to the next level of visual entertainment which is what the average Joe and Jane are looking for from their PC.
Maybe if Nvidia can make max render that fast, I might think about one of their GPU's :P
Hopefully the price difference between an ION platform and an integrated Intel graphics isn't that big.
I don't know about Intel buying Nvidia just yet. Intel just got graphics integrated with their cpu which should increase performance. And this should be sufficient for the average Joe and Jane for now.
I certainly hope Intel doesn't buy Nvidia, it would only hurt consumers.
Intel currently has both crossfire and sli support.
Though tech-wise, Intel's advanced fabs and x86 expertise could help Nvidia's GPGPU tech, as well as system integration.
Though I wouldn't actually be surprised if it happened.
So the future is GPU integration with Internet browsers. Interesting. I like where this is going honestly, and it's really surprising that Internet Explorer 9 will be bringing this to the table first, especially coupled with Nvidia Ion.
GPU recognition sounds like an excellent idea. Will this possibly eliminate the need for Flash by any chance, or utterly improve it?
I was impressed with the Google Earth demonstration. I like how the Ion can cycle through the zooming process with literally seamless clarity. It definitely makes our current technology look low grade. I also liked how they zoomed into a vegas hotel....I think.
I was planning on getting a netbook specifically for college, but I was always turned away from them because they feel so worthless that smartphones would be more applicable to my needs. But this has rekindled everything.
Thanks for filling me in HH.
Ah it would have been cool if I had Ion in my netbook but I wanted a netbook that would last without having to charge for a long time... but I'm also a gamer... so ahhh Dx
The one on the right is plugged into regular power, and the one on the left is plugged into a Potato. Not fair!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
It's surprising. I didn't think that GPU's would be the future but here it is, making text look better and accelerating future web applications.
And while IE9 may be the first, The alpha version of Firefox 3.7 has this implemented currently and I'm using it right now.
